It’s 10-4 good buddies…like roadkill from pavement we have swag just scraped off the press (from The Dude Screen Printing—our new awesome go-to shirt guy)! It’s our spearmint green tees with tractor trailer unit showing the ‘What’s Yer 20’ logo which we promised to our winning Facebookers and Tweeters who followed us along our road trip.
If you didn’t follow us on our trip, we asked our followers to help direct our Illinois/Iowan route all the way to our mecca destination, Walcott I-80, the world’s largest truckstop. Here’s a quick run-down of what our winners got trucker cool stuff for:
JackInTheJungle started us off in Chi-Town by sending us to Acacia Park Cemetery to look for a cool building;
Next, Sarah James decided our 10-20 would be the Town of Sandwich instead of Genoa, Illinois. Sandwich was the motherlode of many things interesting as you can see from this pic of their local school!
Marie Hohner picked Dale’s new CB handle…‘Hot Shoe’ which he used while communicating on our swanky CB set;
We gave Sue Manzuik a choice between destinations of Wyatt Earp’s Birthplace or Ronald Regan Trail. Sue picked Wyatt and off we went;
Brian Close won a CB iPhone attachment for guessing which famous painting was within 2 hours of our then Instamapp locale. It was of course American Gothic by Grant Wood. Away we went to Eldon;
Christy Yaseyko answered which TV character came from Ottumwa, Iowa. It was of course Radar O’Reilly from M*A*SH. If Ottumwa was good enough for Radar, it was good enough for us to stay for the night. Radar lived around so, much, corn;
Which ‘berg’ town should we go to? Well Tweeter Cam Hoff thought that out of Prairieburg, Guttenburg, Luxemburg and Petersburg that Guttenburg was a primo choice. Who can beat the expansive roads of Prairieburg?!
FaceBooker Brock Skywalker knew what famous movie the line “if you build it, he will come” was from and we put the hammer down and headed to the movie site Field of Dreams;
Thanks to your participation our road trip was just that much more awesome so congrat’s to our winners, we will be contacting you. For the rest of you, if you RSVP in January 2013 for our calendar launch party, we will have a whole bunch of our tee’s and more goodies that we picked up along the road (not roadkill) to give away. Hope to see you then! For now it’s over and out…
